Flock is better than iPhone, or at least as revolutionary... [Jun. 10th, 2006|08:51 pm]

Q: Why Flock?

A: To me, there of several features that are extremely appealing...

  • Blog Post Editor - (see User Guide)
  • RSS News Feeds Reader, built-in (see User Guide)
  • Media Stream - access/update your favorite photos at Flickr or Photobucket, and at YouTube.
  • Multi-search-site integration
  • My World - (see User Guide)
  • Extensible - extensions can be added that extend the built-in capabilities - note: My Favorite Add-ons (a.k.a. Extensions)
  • Customizable - buttons can be re-arranged, using View»Toolbars»Customize...", for example.
  • Collections of Favorites - for versions 0.7.x. As of version 0.9, integration with social bookmarking systems (e.g. de.licio.us)
  • Built-in spell checker
  • And many other features.

I have given a lot of feedback, and encourage others to do so also, simply use: Help»Give Feedback, or click on the blue fly icon (Send Feedback) to the right of the URL/location field.

BTW, I wrote Instructions on how to download and start using Flock...

Kind Regards,

Out of curiosity, which version are you using?

I think they've taken out "Collections" from the latest build, because I can't find them. I assume you mean within Flock, rather than a third party service tied into Flock.

If it's still in here where is it? I'm still trying to find all the features and make the most of them.

collections are still there, they are in the favorites manager (Favorites -> Manage Your Favorites), somebody decided to remove the selctor tool from the toolbar, but you can get that back too by going into about:config and toggling flock.favorites.enableToolbarSelector

Word to the reordering request, it's on my list to implement.

As for adding one directly, that, too is on my list to. Things like these tend ot fall by the wayside as we churn through ideas.

Also great news.

Will you be adding the ability to have subcategories? I have a lot of collections and would like to organize them under some structure.

that's a bit further off as our underlying structure doesn't really support the concept, but it will happen eventually one way or another.
